Actor on Death Bed Hopes for Role in Beyond

The Los Angeles Times, June 4, 1925 — “I haven’t created any sensations on the world’s stage, but maybe the great Director will give me better parts to play ‘Over There.'”

That is the hope whispered to friends by Dan J. Reagan, an actor of the old school, an hour before he died at the General Hospital last Tuesday. Funeral services were conducted yesterday by Rev. G. Smith, at the Le Roy Eagley Undertaking parlor in Hollywood, internment following at Grand View Cemetery [in Glendale]. The services were under the auspices of the Actors’ Relief Fund Association.

Reagan, who was 65 years of age, formerly was an acrobat and character actor with circuses and in vaudeville. He had been doing “bits” with the motion-picture companies for the last nine years. He lived at 215 Boyd street and had no relatives.
